This course counts for 16 hours CPD
This practical day includes hands-on dog training sessions working with a variety of rescue dogs with various temperaments.
You will learn about the importance of mental stimulation, assessing each dogs training needs and doing foundation exercises to help gain connection rather than control. You will receive critical observation on your training techniques.
We are able to tailor the course to suit. If you are wanting to become a dog trainer we will provide full theoretical knowledge and further hands on training.
Alternatively the day can include a minimum of a 3 hour live behaviour consultation if you wish to become a canine behaviour practitioner.
Learn how to prepare a behaviour modification plan that clients will be able to use.
You will also learn more about canine body language, and functional reward training as well as how to deal with dog to dog aggression.
As well as offering a 4 day dog behaviour training practical course, we also now offer this shorter intensive course in order to allow those wanting to gain practical experience.
The two days can be any day of the week, including weekends. During the first day you will spend time training at least 3 different dogs, gaining an opportunity to read body language, assess and compare the dogs’ responses and learn how to improve your lead handling skills. We believe that the relationship between dog and handler is the most important factor when working with dogs. No harsh methods or tools are used – we only use welfare orientated, ethical training methods.
During the second day you will attend a live behaviour consultation and also be involved in writing the personalised behaviour modification plan.
We believe it would be unethical to offer theory courses alone. Theory and practical experience should go hand in hand, both are important.
Whether you are just starting out in your career or are still working towards accreditation as a behaviour practitioner this course will help you to achieve your goal.
